Isaiah and Jeremiah both refered to one of the reasons God turned his back on ancient Israel was that there were many jews sacrificing their own children to Baal.  So God lifted his protection and allowed for Israel to be invaded.  That seemed to be the final straw.  
My question?
In the modern area... how does abortion fall into this view?  Is abortion in a way human/child sacrifice and will that lead to God's judgment on the United States.  Current stats show that 1 in 3 women will of had an abortion by the age of 40.  The vast majority of this are just simply because of reasons like... being too young and financial concerns or not being ready yet.
